I am research associate in Computational Epidemiology in the Department of Medicine, in School of Public Health at Imperial London College (ICL).

My research focuses on applied statistical methods in epidemiological studies and statistical, bioinformatic and interpretive analysis of analytical data.

Additionally, my current research focuses on the comparison of different feature selection techniques using machine learning techniques and their ability to select important features for predictive models. 

Research area

Computational Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, analytical chemistry, simulations, computational biology, metabolomics, wide association studies, data analysis and management, platform design, application of advanced computational and simulation schemes of pharmacokinetic, toxicokinetic and environmental models, semantic web, ontologies.
